Commercial Pilot School Colorado
Is it worth a trip from Colorado to Florida to attend commercial pilot school at Paragon Flight? Yes! We offer all aspects needed for successful, fun, and safe flight training via custom programs with a student focus.
As a top flight school, Paragon Flight’s location in Fort Myers, Florida, is one great reason to choose our facility. We may not control the weather, but because of the 350+ days of flight-ready conditions, we can speed up the process of earning a pilot license.
Each student-pilot we train enjoys a custom program based upon their goals, situation, schedule availability, and financial parameters. The FAR authorizations under which we operate include Parts 141 and 61. With both authorizations, we’re able to meet the needs of more pilot candidates with Part 141 strict curriculum and Part 61 flexibility; in some cases, we’re able to combine the two.
Paragon Flight’s curriculum, setting, aircraft, and instructors are such that certifications are earned better and faster than with other flight school options.
Earning Pilot Credentials at Paragon Flight
Get started with an aviation career by earning your Private Pilot Certificate at Paragon Flight. With this license, you’ll be able to fly safely in most situations. Add an Instrument Flight Rating to be able to fly at night and in unexpected conditions.
You’ll need to earn a Commercial Pilot Certificate to make a living. Without one, you can’t legally accept compensation. With a custom program at Paragon Flight, you can earn this certificate and begin earning cash for your love of the sky. At this point, many pilots choose to earn a Certified Flight Instructor certification.
You will also need to pursue a Multi-Engine rating if you plan to progress beyond a single-engine aircraft.
Finding an entry-level position as a pilot is a great way to document hours to reach the 1,500 hours required to become an Airline Transport Pilot. With the ATP certificate and these hours, you can apply to an airline to become a pilot.
Upon becoming an airline pilot, you’ll need to be certified in each aircraft you fly for the company.
The fleet of aircraft here at Paragon Flight serves our pilots’ needs. It includes all of the planes required by our students to document time in the air and earn their sought-after certifications. Members of the fleet itself include the Piper PA 28 “Pilot,” the Cessna C172S Skyhawk, the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole, the Cessna T182T Skylane, the Cirrus SR20 G6, the Cirrus SR22 G5/G6, and the ALSIM AL172 Simulator.
